    You can open C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and add a shortcut there. It will appear both in the All apps list (on the Start screen, open the bottom menu and choose "All apps") and as a tile on the start screen itself. And it will also be available in app search. You then have to unpin the icon from the start screen by right-clicking on it and choosing Unpin from Start from the bottom menu.


    For the local user's path, use C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Wind ows\Start Menu\Programs folder.
    AND ADD PROGRAMS
